Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.
A. Campbell, Esq Springfield,
My dear Sir June 25- 1858

In 1856 you gave me authority to draw on you for any sum not exceeding five hundred dollars. I see clearly that such a privilege would be more available now than it was then. I am aware that times are tighter now than they were then. Please write me at all events; and whether you can now do anything or not, I shall continue grateful for the past. Yours very truly A LINCOLN
